The Just Catch Offshore, a modularized carbon capture facility for offshore installations, has been successfully qualified by DNV, the global independent energy expert and assurance provider. It is now ready to be deployed in offshore oil and gas fields where Aker Carbon Capture’s proprietary solution can significantly reduce emissions from offshore power generation.
“DNV’s recently published Energy Transition Outlook report reveals that Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is indispensable for global decarbonization efforts, across multiple industry sectors. We are pleased to provide validation of the technology in a frontier application area – power generation in the offshore sector. DNV has validated that Aker Carbon Capture’s modular technology Just Catch Offshore can capture CO2 from flue gas stemming from turbines on floating offshore installations,” said Jørg Aarnes, Global Lead, Hydrogen and CCS, Energy Systems at DNV.
Oil and gas production is a significant source of CO2 emissions. In Norway, the industry accounted for 25 percent of the country’s total emissions in 2021, according to Statistics Norway. As operators are looking for ways to reduce their own emissions, offshore CCS is emerging as a competitive alternative.
